Many of us have been trying to keep on a strong exercise plan in 2017. We have set time during the day to go on the daily walk around the park or jog the local trail. For the most part, it’s been a decent steady workout session throughout the year but I know some of us have been falling behind.
Sometimes there are just things that come up during the day preventing us from getting all the time we need to go on that walk in the park. Maybe you’ve changed into your workout gear and you drove yourself to the park and you’re ready to go. Your daughter’s school calls you and tells you she needs to go home because she’s sick. You can’t just leave her there. It’s obvious you have to head over to school and take care of her for the day, leaving your daily exercise undone.
We’ve said it in the past, and we’ll say it again. Take time before work every morning to do your exercise. By moving all workout activities to the morning, it is less likely that interruptions will occur, allowing for you to complete your exercise. You can easily get to the park at the crack of dawn and set out for your brisk walk. After you’re done, you will be able to go home and start getting ready for work. Not only are you making sure you get your workout out of the way early, you’re also reducing stress for the rest of the day. Studies have shown that working out in the morning has shown increased productivity and energy for the work day.
However, everyone has those mornings where we can’t get things done and we just need that extra hour of sleep. That is okay to do from time to time as sleep is also a very important aspect of stress reduction. There are a few small exercises that can be done within your own office space to help and ensure that you’re getting your routine in. Bridges, Abdominal Contractions, Front Planks using the floor/desk and Chair stands can be done in your work area. Bridges and abdominal contractions can be done on the floor and require no extra items. Front planks can be done on the floor or a desk can be placed to plank off as well. Chair stands are exercises involving getting up from your chair repeatedly.
Stress-relief can be relinquished from exercise and it is important to include it in your everyday schedule, whether it be before or after work. If you forget to do your exercise in the morning, doing a few small office workouts can keep you on track for your goal and get you moving. These routines that get your heart pumping will drop your stress if you keep up with the plan you’re using.
The quickest way to drop stress, however, is receiving a corporate chair massage from Massage Kneads. With many experienced chair massage therapists onsite, we can help reduce tension as your stress will fades away.
